#RIPPaulWalker: Celebs React to Paul Walker’s Death


It’s been less than 48 hours since Paul Walker’s tragic death in the passenger seat of his friend Roger Rodus’ 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. The late 90’s heartthrob turned action hero died on Saturday afternoon around 3:30PM driving away from a fundraiser in the community of Valencia. “Because of the condition of the bodies, which were badly burned, dental records will be used to positively identify the victims,” said Los Angeles County coroner’s investigator Dana Bee. The outpour began immediately, some still in disbelief, until hours later, from the actor’s personal twitter handle (@RealPaulWalker) the announcement came: “It’s with a heavy heart that we must confirm Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident.” Over 393,000 retweeted this comment along with the dozens upon dozens of tweets sent out by friends, co-stars, celebs, and fans.
